‘President has successfully guided this economy out of the teeth of a terrifying recession

Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg’s claim that the U.S. supply chain was only strained because of President Joe Biden‘s success in guiding the country out of a recession raised plenty of eyebrows on Sunday.

The U.S. supply chain crisis has affected Americans of all stripes, despite White House chief of staff Ron Klain endorsing the message that it and inflation are “high class problems.” Yet, Buttigieg told CNN on Sunday that the reason the supply chain is dealing with backlogs is because demand and income are up under Biden.

“Demand is up,” Buttigieg said, “because income is up, because the president has successfully guided this economy out of the teeth of a terrifying recession.”

Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, was among the lawmakers, political strategists and social media users who accused Buttigieg of spinning the situation with faulty logic. Last month, the administration was accused of being “economically illiterate” for claiming Biden’s Build Back Better would cost “zero dollars.”

“Dem talking points: ‘The supply chain is broken down, goods can’t get in & inflation is skyrocketing…because things are so damn good. And this will continue. By winter, things will be so good … there will be no Christmas presents whatsoever!’ Cruz tweeted.
